Subject: Who?
This is a biography on the famous songwriter, Stephen Foster. If you dont know who that is, hes the guy responsible for Old Folks At Home, I Dream Of Jeannie and Swanee River among other compositions. This biography doesnt really tell you much in terms of gossip about the guy (he had a failed marriage that turned him to drink!) and the acting here is just ok, with Douglass Montgomerys hideous age makeup overpowering his performance here. I guess the main focus is the music. I guess thats not bad, but mind you, were talking the later 1800s hit parade here. So like were talking about like Beautiful Dreamer territory here. One thing though, I just love how the main music is strains of Old Folks At Home. I mean, youve never heard the song used as a background to a man under a drinks spell!

Subject: An entertaining film
This film brings back memories of the Saturday Morning Matinees I used to attend as a child. This story is a period piece about the composer Stephen Foster. The story line is romanticised and pulls loosley from the facts. After all, it is an entertainment and not a history. The politically correct may object to the black-face performers of the songs, but you must realize that Minstrel Shows were a big part of the entertainment of that period. Totally underated but totally enjoyable.
